Beauty on a budget

There are also many tips to find store products that can replace your expensive needs as well. If you do your research, you will often find that those wholesome products for less just might work better!  

Local Beauty Schools are Voted
Best Beauty on a Budget tip of the Year!

Professional products, treatments, cuts, colors and styles at a fraction of the cost.  Most beauty schools have full working salons for their students that are ready to graduate and need hands on training.  

Hair cut, color, nails, massage, facials.  These are all ideas of local educational facilities that may offer services for half or more off typical industry pricing.  Here in Las Vegas, Paul Mitchell School on Eastern is an example of this type of salon. 

If you need updos or evening styling for weddings, prom or just going out on the town, give the students some practice and save some money!

Makeup Remover Wipes 576 for 12 bucks!

Stop buying the expensive makeup remover wipes! Even on the low side you get 25 for $5 bucks at the discount stores!

Get Huggies wipes these work great, just as well if not better than the expensive types at removing everything even mascara and you can get them at Sams Club in a 720ct package for less than $15 bucks.

Dont get the natural ones, they do not work, just get the plain old regular Huggies wipes or the one and one.  If you are not near a location that makes these easy to get, you can order them right here on Amazon.

HUGGIES Simply Clean Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes Soft Pack, 576 Count

I believe the key ingredient is the mineral oil, just like using baby oil to remove makeup only these are not oily at all. You can also buy a huge baby oil at the dollar store for a dollar and rub that on your eyes and then wipe clean with a Huggies wipe or tissue.

It was an accidental discovery, but my daughter and I can not live or travel without these wipes now. And as far as beauty on a budget goes, I can not even imagine the money we have saved over time. Plus they are soft, non irritating and really work better than many brands of actual makeup remover I have tried. I love Avon, but have used their makeup remover and can tell you these wipes work better. Even on stubborn mascara such as Falsies.

We have sent my husband out while on vacations to buy our wipes if we forgot them and we don't have to feel guilty about spending $6-$8 dollars because we forgot them because we can often get a decent small pack for $2.79.

Pantene Leave in Conditioning Spray

Or worse??.... more expensive brands. True it is only five dollars and change, but why... I have been addicted to Pantene spray leave in conditioning spray or anything I could find on sale for under $4 dollars I would try them all just to comb through my hair after I got out of the shower. 

There are so many smoothing sprays and oils that leave your hair oily and heavy, this is light, anti frizz and makes your hair soft and smooth. Then along came suave kids detangler - yep, a whopping $1.99 on an average, an amazing beauty on a budget find, and if you don't mind smelling of green apple, it makes an awesome cheap replacement for the expensive spray in beauty products.

My hair combs right through just as easily, what a beauty on a budget find! Another great one is the Aussie brand under $3. 

Shiny Hair With Mayonnaise

A budget staple for years! I can not tell you how many people swear by this. Just use as a deep conditioner the day before wear so you dont smell like a salad. It is greasy, but works wonders for shine and moisture.

Eliminate all those expensive shine shampoos and leave in serums costing you a small fortune. And now they even have Olive Oil mayo! So for under $5 bucks you have a few months worth of treatments.

The Alternative to Expensive Face Creams

    This is the stuff! Swiss collagen and vitamin e cream for $7.50. Amazing on everything from face to feet and especially for very dry skin.  This has been around forever and there is a reason for it.
    Other great places to find deals on expensive face creams are Big Lots, The dollar stores and places like Sams Club and Costco where they have big tubs of vitamin E creams for around 6 dollars. 
    Dont forget the somewhat expensive coconut oil. If you get the huge container at a warehouse store however, it is about 14 dollars for 42 ounces and it is great for hair, cuticles, hands, feet, faces and bodies. PS: dont forget to search Groupon!
